Jameson's is a fine Irish whiskey, and like most fine things should be appreciated in as unadulterated a form as possible. The addition of a small amount of water can help to bring out the aroma,or 'nose' of the whiskey but additives such as ginger ale can only detract from the flavour and are to be avoided. Other Irish whiskeys you might wish to try are John Powers and Bushmills. William Tell is more knowledgeable on these things than I am, but one thing I will say, if you ever get then chance to sample good Irish poteen on no account pass it up. It can be very fine stuff indeed.

I'm more of a homebrew beer type. This is a pic of my basement brewery:

On the table a pint of English ESB, in the left fermenter is a rauchbier (smoked beer) finishing up primary fermentation, and in the right fermenter is a Marzen aging in a secondary fermenter. Not pictured in my refrigerator is a Czech-style Pilsner which I just brewed on Monday.

Maybe some of you can meet me at Furthur in VA or DE in February and you can try a glass or 2.

neat it was and it is almost gone....it is very good, though I find it to have a smidge of Tennessee sipping whiskey character...though a bit smoother

I also tried Bushmills...very similar but I believe I prefer the Jameson

Bushmills does make a tasty Irish Coffee-HOLD the whipped cream damnit

surprised I didn't hear from Sir Wm. on this one

DR'71-nice looking brewery you've got there

I'm really more a beer man myself, but do enjoy a bit of whiskey on occasion. If you haven't experienced it, and can find Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron I expect you will find it to your liking
